According to the OS design, a HDD is required to be ready within 10 seconds. However, some large volume HDDs may need more than 10 seconds to initialize. Consequently, longer initialization time may result in BSOD with the error codes below:
－ STOP 0x0000007A
－ STOP 0x00000077
－ STOP 0x000000F4
If this occurred, please update Microsoft OS patch KB977178 to resolve this issue.
